German News

Taught by the faculty members of Temple’s Department of French, German, Italian and Slavic, the College of Liberal Arts’ German Program teaches students a major world language. Here, you can read German faculty, student and alumni stories, and you can contact us if you have a story of your own you think we should tell. The program prepares students to have meaningful conversations throughout the German-speaking world, which affords them the chance to experience incredible journeys during their time at Temple and beyond. From linguistic to cultural lessons, German students gain a newfound appreciation for the intricacies of the language, its peoples and their societies.

The Department of French, German, Italian, and Slavic would like to congratulate the following students, who have just been awarded scholarships for excellence in German:

  • Miquela Berge (Devinney Scholarship to study in Hamburg, 2021/22)
  • Julia Oborna (German Society of Pennsylvania, 2021/22)
  • Erik Helland (German Professor’s Prize, 2021)
